Does anybody know what the name of this product is?

Recommended Posts

So 3-4 years ago, I had began researching online for a converter that would allow me to use a 2600 joystick (or any other controller with the same adapter) on a 5200 console. I eventually found the device pictured here.... but I literally cannot remember who and where I bought it from.

 

It came with documentation explaining how to use it, and most likely included a name. But unfortunately, I cannot seem to find said documentation. I tried a Reverse Image search as well, but Google thought it was a picture of a bag :_(

 

I had given up on using it shortly afterwards. I was going through my collection today and found it, so maybe you guys can help me solve this mystery?

It's a Masterplay clone

Wow, that was easy! Do you have any idea if the documentation on how to use it is available online?

I know the feeling about forgetting the name of something. There is an all-in-one SD based cartridge that I remember, but the name escapes me, along with the price and link to the place to order it. :_(

I have one, I can scan the documentation if you'd like. Basically though you plug the controller you want to use in the masterplay ( I use a Genesis pad), plug the masterplay into the 5200. Choose a game where you can move in all directions - I use Berserk or Adventure II and then dial the knobs in until your character stops moving. One of the knobs controls the x and the other y axis. The keypad corresponds to the pad on the 5200 controller. The letters are the pause/reset/start buttons. I think there is a switch on the box to toggle between joysticks and paddles.
